The Seattle Seahawks swapped undrafted running backs in Wednesday’s roster transaction.
Former Clemson Tiger Adam Choice was waived with an injury designation, although it wasn’t known as to what injury it was, Choice was apparently in crutches in Seattle’s previous OTA. Choice was signed by the Seahawks immediately after the 2019 NFL Draft.
In his place, the Seahawks picked up another UDFA RB, Marcelias Sutton out of Oklahoma. Standing just 5’8” and 196 lbs, Sutton was a junior college transfer who only played two seasons with the Sooners. Sutton racked up a grand total of 51 carries for 282 yards and four touchdowns. His 2018 was cut short after just six games, as he suffered a season-ending leg injury.
Seattle’s current running back depth chart consists of Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, C.J. Prosise, sixth-round rookie Travis Homer, Bo Scarbrough, J.D. McKissic, and now Sutton. I suppose McKissic is considered a WR/RB hybrid, but you get the point.
For something fun pertaining to Sutton, here’s this hurdle that he had against Iowa State last year.
